|Let the memory of Robert be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our beloved, Robert Lee Greene, Jr., 25, born on October 22, 1989 and passed away on January 15, 2015. We will remember him forever. Robert is the dearly beloved son of Robert and Angela Greene.
His family moved to Miami, Florida when he was an infant. Robert graduated from Everglades High School with honors and played on the basketball team. He graduated from the University of South Florida on an academic scholarship. Following in his father's footsteps Robert became a member of the Zeta Xi Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. Robert excelled at the University of South Florida. Because of his hard work and determination he was able to earn his bachelor's degree in three years.
After college Robert worked for the St. Petersburg Florida Sheriff's Office as a Child Protection investigator. Because of what he witnessed as an investigator he decided to attend Law School so that he could be an advocate for children and families in need. In August of 2014 Robert enrolled in Barry University School of Law in Orlando, Florida where he also excelled. Robert never lost sight of his goals for the future.
Robert was a thoughtful, caring, and all around great person who always wanted to see his family and friends happy and successful. He was always willing to lend a helping hand and extend himself to others.
